Just received my Gitzo 2531 and Markins Q10 - beautifully crafted equipment.

This model, of course, has the center column (that I don't plan on using). There is a configuration for "ground level set" where you can essentially remove the center column and attach the plate to the knob used to adjust the center column - and have the hook attach to the bottom of the plate.

Is there any advantage of just leaving the tripod set for "ground level set"? Would it have any impact on reduced vibration?

excuse typos..
